Here is my soon to be Cham cage! It is a 30”L x 18”W x 30”H. I have the 5.0 reptisun uvb, should I have two for this cage? One on each side? And also, what wattage bulb would you recommend for the basking area?

It’s defintely going to be a Veiled. Make if I can find one.
Baby/juvenile (<9 months): ambient 72-80F (22-26C), basking 85F (29C)
Adult males: ambient 75-80F (23-26C), basking 90-95F (32-35C)
Adult females: ambient 75-80F (23-26C), basking 85F (29C)

I am currently using a 50w Philip grow light that is dimmable for both my male and female veileds right now

Then get ready to buy another cage cuz that thing ain't going to be big enough for an Adult Male Veiled. Need at least 2x2x4' enclosure. And I'm guessing you have the coil UVB bulbs? You can return those they are worthless. You need a T5HO linear UVB bulb. And a 50w basking bulb should be fine to start.
